Dr. Edward ("Ed") Arthur Colcord Staples |

I am interested in obtaining any information regarding my cousin, Doane Blood Colcord who served in the 1st Regiment, Maine Heavy Artillery. I would be especially interested in a picture of him and/or his comrades.

Doane was born in Bucksport, Maine, on November 14, 1841. From his mustering-in date to December, 1863, he was a Musician in Co. "G," 1st Regiment,Maine Heavy Artillery.

During November and December, 1863, he underwent examination and evaluation for service in the U.S. Army Signal Corp. On December 24, 1863 at Fort Sumner, he was transferred to the U.S. Army Signal Corps by General Order #388 from the War Department. He remained with that service until being mustered out in 1865.

Doane had a brother, William David Colcord, who was a Private in Company "A," 1st California Battalion of Mountaineers and a sister, Emily, who was a nurse during the Civil War.

I am currently writing a book ("Freedom's Warriors")on the exploits of my Colcord ancestors in the Civil War. Any information which one might provide would be very helpful in the completion of my task.

I also had 2 Colcord relatives in the 1st Maine Vol. Cavalry Regiment and one each in the 3rd, 4th, 6th, 9th, 26th and 29th Maine Volunteer Infantry Regiments.

I am a Civil War enthusiast, and my wife and I have travelled many campaign trails in the South. In the process of my research and travel over the years,I have accumulated a variety of informational bits and pieces which I would be more than happy to share.

Congratulations on a marvelous web site!

Arthur P. Budge of Co. A, First Maine Heavy Artillery was a brother to my GGGrandfather, John S. Budge. Have no info on Arthur after the Civil War other than that he apparently moved to Minneapolis, MN. Any information appreciated.

I would appreciate any information you might have on
Charles A. and Ludovic Gatchell. I am certain that these
two people are brothers of my ancestor Oscar.

I am not direct descendant of Benjamin Brooks of Company C but I am a direct descendant of his older brother James who did not serve in the Civil War. It would be nice to get some biographical information on his service in the war if possible.

Thanks, Craig Brooks

I am the great-great-granddaughter of COL. CHARLES A. CLARK, a medal of honor awardee who served in the 6th Maine. I believe that his three brothers, WHITING STEVENS CLARK, JAMES WILLIAM CLARK, and FRANKLIN ATHERTON CLARK all served in the First Maine Heavy Artillery (at least they're listed on the website here!). Frank died in July, 1864 of wounds suffered at Petersburg; the 3 other brothers survived wounds that they received during the war (I believe that all were wounded in battle; I know that Charles and James were). The Clark family was from Sangerville, ME. I am in the process of compiling family history and am interested in tracking down any info I can about the Clark family. Thanks! Andrea Solarz
